Career Decisions and Transitions
6th July 2022
In this online workshop PhD researchers will learn how to improve their employability depending on their career goals, using tools and techniques to assist them in assessing their skills and interests.
With a career planning overview and information about what influences career decisions, participants will understand how to apply this knowledge, in particular their skills and values to make informed career decisions and identify areas for personal development.
Examination of the employment market and learning a variety of job seeking strategies will also help PhD researchers to be more knowledgeable about the world of work and how to secure a position, whatever their interests and career goals.
Effective communication and networking skills built into the session will help participants to learn how to research different career sectors effectively to help to secure non-academic careers, as well as pursuing an academic career track.
